Cyrielle Ndjiki Nya, soprano, holds a master’s degree in cultural mediation with a specialization in music and dance from the Sorbonne, and has given herself the freedom to choose opera singing. She came to classical music through 7 years of piano practice.

She has always loved singing, but lyric singing came to her out of a desire to master her voice. From then on, she never stopped perfecting her voice and meeting people who were essential to her musical development, and she joined Chantal Mathias’ class at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. In 2017, Cyrielle joined the fourth generation of the Opera Fuoco lyric workshop, directed by David Stern. In May 2018, she was the 4th maid in Strauss’s Elektra at the Bordeaux Opera auditorium, and Elettra in Mozart’s Idomeneo, under the stage direction of Elsa Rooke in September 2018 with Opera Fuoco in Levallois. She met Karine Deshayes during the master class les plaisirs de la Seine with Opera Fuoco, and was most recently Ortlinde in Wagner’s La Walkyrie at Opera de Bordeaux, conducted by Paul Daniel. She is the High Priestess in Verdi’s Aida, the Second Lady in The Magic Flute in Montpellier, and the Dama in Verdi’s Mac Beth in Saint Etienne in 2022-2023.Cyrielle is a laureate of the Tarrazzi Foundation and the Fondation de France Dauphin de Verna, and more recently of the Meyer Foundation and the Kriegelstein Fund. She is a member of the Beethoven promotion of the Academie Jaroussky and a laureate of the Fondation Orsay Royaumont.

Her first album, Muses éternelles, recorded with the support of Patrick Petit and accompanied by Kaoli Ono on piano, was released by Mirare Futur in 2022.
